Allagash author Tim Caverly to present for kids and adults Aug. 18

Author Tim Caverly will give two presentations at Porter Memorial Library in Machias on Thursday, August 18. Both events are free and open to the public.

The first program at 2 p.m. is for children. Depending on the ages in the audience at 2 p.m. that day, Caverly will present either his 30-minute “Andy’s Surprise” for ages pre-K to 1st grade; or a 45-minute virtual canoe trip, “Allagash-New England’s Wild River” for all school-age children.

Caverly’s 5 p.m. program is for teens and adults, entitled “So You Think You Know Maine.” Caverly draws on a wealth of personal experience when he writes about the Maine and its natural resources. During his 32-year career at Maine’s Department of Conservation, Caverly did everything from laborer to ranger, manager, regional supervisor, and Supervisor of the Allagash Wilderness Waterway. Since retiring from state fieldwork, Caverly and his wife, Susan, visit schools and libraries throughout Maine to entertain with Maine Woods lore and educate younger generations about the importance of natural resource conservation.

Porter Memorial Library is located at 92 Court Street in Machias. Call 207-255-3933 for more information, or email [email protected]
